Located in a safe, quiet residential area in Clairemont, San Diego 92111, almost everything in San Diego is no more than a 15-20 minute drive from this perfect location. Beaches, Sea World, San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, downtown San Diego Gaslamp, San Diego Airport, and more!
The house is just enough space for your family or group of friends to enjoy time together and have enough privacy when needed. The large resort-like yard is the product of many years of Dave's never-ending vision and hard work. We hope you enjoy spending time here as much as we do.

Sit under the misters at the poolside tiki bar and have a cold beverage as your favorite tunes play on the outdoor stereo system.
Catch some California sun in one of the many lounge chairs or sip your morning coffee on the shaded patio. Enjoy the koi pond while you get ready for some great food from the built-in stainless steel barbecue.
In the evening turn on the ambient landscape lighting, light the tiki torches, and slip into the jetted spa hot tub. After you have relaxed away your day of sightseeing, sit around the lava rock fire pit and enjoy the temperate San Diego evening.

We try to keep the house well stocked with most of the supplies you need to make your stay comfortable. Included are high thread count linens, pool & bath towels, bathroom supplies, hair dryers, DVD movies, board games, kitchen condiments, laundry & dish soap, etc. (view a more complete list here)
We are constantly trying to add fun and useful things to the house.
Recently we added:
Yes, we have both a heat pump and solar pool heat in place! There is an additional cost for optional pool heating. Without the heat, the pool would be around 55° (13°C) during the winter and is usually swimmable from late June - October. With the heaters we can keep it at around 80° (27°C) to 74° (23°C)(on very cold days).
There are two bathrooms in the house, but only one shower. There is also a hot shower outside in the back yard. ;)
We try to keep the house stocked with enough items to make your stay comfortable without having to buy certain necessities. View a partial list here.
No, but there's usually enough of a slight breeze to make it comfortable with the windows open. There are a couple of weeks a year that it gets pretty hot, but usually most people are out in the yard that time of year anyway.
We have now added a whole-house fan that makes a nice airflow too!
The neighborhood is very quiet; not like a rowdy beach community (although with the central location, those are close to drive to!). It's safe enough to leave the windows open during the night and go for walks any time of day or night.
Freeway onramps are close as well as are major streets with grocery stores, department stores, etc.
We are a kid-friendly rental, but not necessarily kid-safe. We have had many families with small children enjoy their vacation with us but you will have to watch the little ones around the pond, pool, and hot tub.
The house is about 150 feet up a hill from the freeway and the yard has a 6-foot stone wall around it that buffers the traffic noise quite a bit. Yes, there is some noise but so far none of our guests have had any issue with it whatsoever.
It's only a 4 mile drive to Qualcomm from the house making it an easy drive or taxi ride to a football game!
